As the fight between Cotto and Alvarez approaches, verbal exchanges are becoming more and more bold.
The face offs at every press conference have been intense thus far , but the words spoken from each respective side have been cordial and nothing to write home about–except of course for when Freddie Roach (Boxing coach for five-time and four-division World Champion Miguel Cotto and eight-division World Champion Manny Pacquiao) speaks.
“We will win by knockout,” said Roach during the Los Angeles press conference.
Miguel Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) and Canelo Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) are pretty evenly matched on paper but Canelo is riding high since scoring a potential knockout of the year his last time out against James Kirkland and looks to solidify his status as boxing’s next cash cow and in-ring star.
“I’m not afraid of any fighter…” – Canelo
“I am not afraid of any fighter, but right now I am focused on Cotto. Once this fight is over we can move on to the next big fight,” Canelo said. (source)
In the end, this fight is shaping up to be a spectacle worth seeing.
“We are both great fighters and are coming to give a great fight on November 21,” stated Cotto on Tuesday in Mexico City.
